So a 200 hour game with NG+ on top of that needs a 10 hour DLC?

I'm good with that, I've played through the game twice already and more content is always good.

So which one is Cutter then, aggro or troll? Or do you actually agree with me, but are too afraid to say it out loud? Because he's sure as hell a rabid prick...has been for years now. All I've ever him do is spew bile and venom over anyone he disagrees with.

Frankly, I don't -care- if he's aggro, troll, or some other class of prick. He's exactly what I'm talking about. And all you folks that agree with him seem to be quite happy letting him vomit all over everyone else. Which does not speak well of you, either. Laying down with dogs...fleas, and all that.

He could be all three if he wanted to, but here's the thing you don't seem to get. Even if he's an asshole, he's his own asshole. If he's a troll, he's a troll on his own, even if he's pro, neutral or anti-gg, he's still his own person who can make up their own mind. Welcome to the big boy world, where defending a persons speech even if you disagree with it, is the right thing to do.

The second that you label someone as the face, or a member of something even if they have their own opinions, ideas, or anything else. You're no different then a bigot saying xyz cultural group is xyz or racist going all xyz are blah blah blah because xyz person is that. Or xyz person should be shut up because it hurts my feelings/I don't like it/whatever. The use of identity politics is nothing short of cancer, and you should feel bad for using it.

Oh yeah, "You're a blight on the gene pool, do the rest of us a favour and cull yourself and your pals from it." is just being tons of fun. I get it now.

Here's one of the biggest problems with this GG crowd. Nobody is willing to even attempt to moderate the rabid pricks that are so common among them. Once the death threats and other nastiness start coming out, any moderate voices (if such even exists, I haven't seen any evidence of it) just get quiet and move to the back. I can see just two possible reasons for it. Either they know that to call them down will make them a target too, or they really do agree with the rabid pricks and are happy to let someone else take the backlash.

Find me someone who's not a troll or aggro who's being rabid pricks and I'll follow your line of reasoning. After all, the media have had a really good time with the "GG = death threats narrative" but there's zero proof that it's anyone actually in GG. Then again I can very quickly find pro-doxing, pro-harassment, in major anti-GG voices. We can start with Wu, Quinn, Nyberg to start with.

Here's the thing, when you're dealing with a hashtag anyone can use it right? Unless of course you believe that since xyz person on blues posted a neo-nazi sentiment, all blues posters are neo-nazi's. And that makes no sense, or does it?

Can't forget garbage like this either, That's the face of anti-GG and only one facet of it.

With GG mostly wound down by now, they've somewhat been pushed back to the fringe, but whenever a social issue pops up they'll still try to win back some fans so that maybe they don't get laughed at too hard next time they deny climate change or evolution or gay marriage or whatever less popular ideas they have.

They also tend to be the "every game sucks except for the games I like!" segment, so basically, they make everything no fun.

Uh dude, GG isn't winding down. Kotakuinaction one of the main hubs has over 1m unique visits per month, and is in the top 50 of busiest subs on reddit. But let's look at today's "social justice warriors" so we've got: Wu screaming about how Samus Aran is trans, and goes batshit insane when proven wrong. The Mary Sue, engaging in open conspiracy theories, and one of the prominent anti-GG members apparently engaging in pedophilia and aGGro's circling the wagons to protect them.

I think you mean social justice warriors are the "every game sucks except the games that follow my exact ideology." The vast majority of GG believes that market force will determine if a game is good or bad, and considering the number of aggro's and sjw's who want to shoehorn people into things to make it fit their ideology, you tell me: Which group is being "unfun" the one that says "let the market decide" or the one that says "it's transphobic, it must be banned."

Oh and one can't forget this one.

"Justice" and "Social Justice" are two very different things.

Additionally, what something is labeled can be far from how it is treated. The common political standings of Liberalism and Conservatism in the US act as pro-censorship and pro-big government, respectively, despite the dictionary terms being quite the opposite.

True. These days "social justice" seems to be leaning towards authoritarian restrictions and mob justice regardless of what the evidence actually says. Where groups of people get all upset when something offends their sensibilities and want to ban it. See the most recent case of SJW's going after the feminism mein kampf extension, or the UVA rape case..or lack thereof.

An educated mind can also easily pick up the difference between propaganda that uses weasel words and cherry picking. Which is what this video is, and actual researched information presented properly.

The game is 75 canadian... Even more than Fallout 4... That's a little too much.

I'm hearing an awful lot of that these days from people. It's really reminding me of the very late 90's and early 00's when we got fucked in the neck on game prices. Paying $70-90 for a new release is insane, and all this is going to do is cause an increase in piracy and people buying from shady sites.

Well seems to have fixed some of the stuttering problems from the last beta drivers as well for GTA V and STO. Haven't played with anything else yet, but looks good.

Isn't the day night cycle in the free patch? I think the expansion provides the entertainment buildings.

Yep, it's coming in a free patch. The expansion itself will have entertainment buildings, better traffic flow and a bunch of other stuff. Basically it took all of the most popular mods, and built on those ideas.

Whoops, missed out on the $25 Kickstarter, got in at $30. Divinity Original Sin was great, I have high hopes for D:OS 2 and the Enhanced Edition which is coming out... soon?

I've put in some serious hours(for me) on D3 Patch 2.3, now it's time to start the PoEt replay + expansion. Dual Wield Barb, I suspect.

There's a $26 pledge box now for those that missed at $25. I enjoyed the hell out of the first one as well. And the enhanced ed. is supposed to be coming out this fall, the same with Wasteland 2. Oh and don't forget Xcom2 comes out in November.

I have only been using it as a downloader. The last time I imported a game I already had installed, it reset it to "out of the box" conditions, which removed the unofficial patches and mods that I had installed. Then when I tried to re-install them, the client installed version uses a modified .exe which made me unable to install the patches because they look for and modify the original game .exe.

So you reported that at http://mantis.gog.com right? After all that's several bugs that should be reported.

This is news to me. May just do that once I upgrade from my SSD hybrid to true SSD

Mirroring software has come a very long way since the early 00's and 90's, it's pretty much foolproof in terms of transferring everything, unless your boot table looks like a can of spaghetti on the floor.

I'm thinking I need a card with more VRAM. My measly 1gb 7850 isn't cutting it. Putting it on an SSD would probably help as well, though I'd have to reinstall Windows again, the current install is using much of my 40gb SSD...

No need to reinstall windows. Use something like acronis and you'll do just fine, that's what I did a couple of years ago when I went from a 60GB first gen SSD to a 4th/5th gen SSD. Took no more then a couple of hours to mirror it, have it automatically modify the boot table, rebuild it, and go on my way.

On a side note, most of the PC's the major brands sell don't come with a dedicated graphics card nor a power supply that can support one, hence a lot of people either need some expensive upgrades or a better PC to play the better games.

I think you mean people are getting ripped off with the 'major pre-built pc's' and if they built them, themselves or had someone do it for them they could pay an equal price and get more out of their money. Especially when you look at R*'s recent sales numbers on the PC, which is somewhere in the range of 5.5m units if I remember right. That either means everyone is buying 3 copies, or there are more people out there then they realize.

Something that this analysis misses, is other services like Origin or Humble, R*'s thingy. Especially titles that are only released on a particular distribution platform. Those alone make the analysis lacking in terms of 'what people are buying and looking at.'

I'm interested in the X-Com EW Long War mod but not sure I want to subscriber to Nexus at a fee to test it out. Has anyone here played it? Is it worth the fee to get the latest beta? Thanks in advance.

I've been a member since it opened(my sub I ID is like 1829 or something stupid like that), you don't need to pay. Subs get faster download speeds, but you get the same speeds if you're a non-sub and rate files if I remember right.

Anyway, I've played it. It's tough, you can expect to save scrum often even lose parts of your team to beat the aliens. I think it was the 3rd or 4th mission I had which was a landing. It was an alien transport there were 23 aliens on board, against my team of super-green rookies. Somehow with liberal use of grenades and pure luck I managed to win the mission with no losses, lots of injuries though.

Honest question.. why is this 22gb, when PSP version was 2GB ?

Because there isn't any data in this that was retained from the psp port? This was a huge HD make over that was made for the consoles/USA, and I'm sure it has a few movies in it.

10GB of movie and audio data actually in english and jp.

Illegal in Canada? Yet Microsoft can still make you sign this illegal document and do business there without any repercussions? Sweet...

ELUA's and so on can't waive rights in Canada. That what makes it illegal(or if you prefer a technical violation), meaning that the terms are unenforceable on the consumer. MS can make all the demands it wants, but you're not bound to any of them. The items under their privacy policy are null under the privacy act(federal), the privacy act(provincial), and the consumer protection act(provincial).

They can do business all the want.

Reminds me of a guy I used to work with, he'd change jobs every couple of years because he simply got bored. With all the experience he had, there was no problem finding another though.

It doesn't matter if its happening right now or not. The EULA grants Microsoft carte-blanche to do whatever the fuck it wants now, or in PERPETUITY. Do you understand that word perpetuity?


Illegal in Canada, so it really means absolute shit to me. If it's that much of a problem where you live, perhaps you should consider pressing your local government to enact laws that protect your privacy rights.
